Today’s devotion is based on Daniel 3:26,27, “So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire . . . They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.”
What does it prove? First of all, it proves that when God saves he does it perfectly. Secondly, it proves that Jesus, since he is God provides a perfect salvation. His saving work is more than a reclamation or restoration job. It goes way beyond a new paint job to spruce up appearances for the time being. He doesn’t simply perform reconstructive surgery. Jesus heals us perfectly. He forgives us perfectly. He saves us perfectly, once and for all and forever. Indeed, as the apostle, Paul once wrote, “we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe” (1 Timothy 4:10).
Please pray with me, Heavenly Father, creator and sustainer of all things, visible and invisible we give you thanks for all you do, for what you do is always perfect even though we might at the time not think so. Help me to understand that perfect salvation is found in you alone. In your blessed name, I pray. Amen.
